Last night, Ruby Deluxe in Raleigh, NC hosted a benefit show to raise funds for The Center Oralndo, which supports the GLBT community. The center has made grief counselors available for those who have been affected by the shooting in Orlando. Additionally, the center is working on educational programs to bring awareness to the community. Much of the issues that the GLBT community falls victim to are a result of ignorance. And despite all that is logical, ignorance can be remedied.
Eight local bands joined together in support of the cause. Thanks to their art and their voice, we raised over $1500 last night. Huge thank you to Weird Pennies – Of Raleigh, Truthers, Vacant Company, Thick Modine, Henbrain, Crete, and Pie Face Girls!
Here are some pictures to recap the evening:
